jobs report and the big worry, carol, that's hanging over all of this is the fiscal cliff. although we're still in the middle of wondering what congress is going to do about it, companies are already holding back hiring so that is clearly impacting the jobs market but the good news once again is the layoffs are slowing, down 12,000 to 350,000 last week. carol? >> thank you very much, washington. alison kosik thank you so much. >>> growing outrage over the decision of a new york newspaper to publish a map with the names and addresses of people who have gun permits. the interactive map was created with information available publicly. it pinpoints the location of legally licensed permit holders for handguns. we reached out for a statement from the newspaper, it sent us this, "the massacre in newtown, connecticut, remains at top-of-mind for many of our readers. or readers are understandably and keenly interested to know about who owns guns in their neighborhoods." scott summervila is president of the westchester new york fire owner association. he is on the list and joins me this morning.

actually spoke. >> contact. hazahs all around. what do we really mean? >> reporter: everybody will see their taxes go up. here's three examples. you have a teacher with two kids making $43,000 a year. taxes will go up by $3,000. a member of congress, they make $174,000 a year. their taxes will go up just next year, $7,500. and lebron james, the guy made about $53 million last year. his taxes, just next year, would go up $2.4 million. >> ouch. >> reporter: poor lebron. >> indeed. we say it's five days away. but the idea is, we can't get this done if they reach a deal 15 minutes before the deadline clears. are we already past the point of no return? >> we are already virtually certain we're going to go over this fiscal cliff. these guys suddenly came to an agreement over the next few days, they could pass it at the beginning of january. but i wouldn't be optimistic about that. >> jonathan karl, i have a feeling i'll see you here around 7:07 tomorrow morning. thank you, jon. >>> let's go to paula faris with the other top stories develop right now. paula? >> we have an update on 41. we beg

again, gregg. i'm patti ann browne in for martha maccallum. there is little to no progress reported in making a deal to avert across the board tax hikes for 90% of american households. president obama on his way back to washington right now but not all the lawmakers are there and if congress and the president do not reach a compromise before january 1st many analysts say the economy will slide back into a recession. gregg: mike emanuel is live on capitol hill. mike, any indication of the president's next move? >> reporter: well, gregg, last time we heard the president talk about the this matter he said he was calling on congressional leaders to essentially make sure taxes do not go up on middle class americans. presumably that would be a package that continues the bush tax cuts for those making up to $250,000. he would also like to continue emergency unemployment benefits for two million americans. and beyond that, details are kind of murky at this point. so we await the president to get back to washington. we know that the senate will be back in session today. we know there have be

-active leadership and management ability related to benghazi. so as a result of that report, then the state department spokeswoman says these four individuals, they make it appear that they're no longer on the payroll, yet they are. >> kelly: congress woman, let me ask you quickly. i've got to get ready to go. i want to ask you about the secretary of state, hillary clinton. we understand that some republicans may try to block voting or confirming the nomination for the secretary of state in john kerry until hillary clinton actually testifies before the committee on what took place in benghazi, what her role may or may not have been. what do you say to that? >> correct. i think they're right to do so. secretary clinton will be coming up to d.c she must testify about benghazi. and now must testify about this. they could be mincing words and parting words and say, we didn't really say they're no longer on the payroll, but they sure made it sound that way. so she's got a lot of explain to go do and i think the senators are correct in doing so. we expect secretary clinton to testify before our c
